Charity through pie throws

Interact will host a pie-throw competition on April 5 during all lunches in the bus loading area behind the cafeteria to raise money for Project Chin Hills, a charity that provides aid to Chin war refugees in the city of Mizoram.

“The pie throw fundraiser came about during COVID because we needed a fundraiser where everybody could stay socially distanced, and there’s no better way to stay socially distanced than throwing pies from six feet away,” Interact sponsor Stuart Hollowell said. 

The teachers getting pied will be determined by nominations submitted through a form that can be accessed through a QR code on the event’s posters scattered throughout campus. The event will be run through all lunches. One pie will cost $3, while two will cost $5.

“I think it’s really [nice] seeing your hard work pay off the day of the event, when you see people having fun, and you’re all doing it for a good cause,” Interact president Brianna Sibounheuang said. “The planning process, even though it’s tedious and takes a while, it’s really rewarding to see people come together.”

During the organization of the event, different charity groups to ultimately receive the donations were thrown around. In order to decide what charity to donate to, officers during a meeting nominated then voted on different ones that were important to them.

“We just talk about it as a group, and then we collectively vote on which one we think is the most beneficial and which one we can make an impact on,”  Sibounheuang said. “So that’s why we chose Project Chin Hills this year.”

People buying tickets are not the only ones enjoying themselves.

“The most fun thing about the event is seeing students have fun pieing the staff or their own teachers they either like or really don’t like,” community service officer Mary Sung said. “It’s really enjoyable to see them smile or having fun while pieing their teachers and knowing that all [of it] is for a good cause [that] will help other people.”
